Change the world

Faculty of Law

We are very pleased to announce that Dr Lynn Biggs has been selected as a participant of a Teaching Advancement at University (TAU) Fellowship for 2018. Lynn is one of only two Nelson Mandela University employees selected for next year's intake (together with Jacqui Luck). The Higher Education Learning and Teaching Association of Southern Africa (HELTASA) offer the Fellowship "for experienced academics who have been acknowledged for their teaching excellence and who wish to further extend their knowledge about teaching and learning within a supportive and collegial environment". The Fellowship, funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) has previously included receipt of a small grant for implementing a teaching, research or development project. 
Lynn has devoted countless hours over the past few years towards assisting the Faculty to be at the forefront of teaching and learning developments, also in relation to assessments, decolonisation and transformation of the curriculum and, of course, in respect of the entire CHE LLB Re-accreditation process. Congratulations on obtaining this national recognition, which is richly deserved. We are certain that Lynn's participation in the various Fellowship sessions during the course of 2018 will impact positively on the work of the Faculty in time to come.
